Hello my Beautiful readers!! Can you guys believe we are halfway through September already?! This year has just flown! The Fall season is always a really busy but exciting time for our family. Brody went back to teaching and coaching full time in August, so his time at home is very limited. He works long days and Saturday mornings leaving us missing him so much! I used to really struggle with football season because I knew the toll it had on our family, but I have learned that it is all about perspective and “this too shall pass”. Brody absolutely loves to coach and be a mentor for those kids. He may be away from us a lot but I know the impact he is having in those kids and the peers around him. I find peace knowing he is where God wants him to be! His coaching does help our family financially and Noelia just LOVES to watch her Daddy coach. Brody knows his time coaching is limited so I just need to let the man enjoy it while he can! Its definitely hard for us wives sometimes to let go of that control, at least for me!

This past Summer was full of great looks that I truly enjoyed creating, shooting, and putting out there on my blog and Instagram (@nickyschmaderer_fit). Call me weird, but I am one of those people that gets sad once a really good shot isn’t close to the top of the feed! Ha, #bloggerproblems…so I thought it would be a great idea to re-post my Instagram favorites in one blog post. As I look back on these looks, and my influencing in general, I am reminded that I truly love doing this! I get asked by many “How do you do it all?!” Well trust me, I don’t! I think my schedule should be dedicated to a blog post by itself because it is seriously insane, ha! Some days are hour by hour. Juggling working full time, being a wife and mother, and my blogging has been a challenge but I know that no good thing comes easy. I have vowed to myself to keep grinding! The long days and hard work will pay off.

I always love a good casual look! This top is under $16 and still in stock. My wedges come in multiple colors and are so comfortable. Definitely worth the splurge.

This picture is my most “liked” picture on Instagram so far, ha! I will have to start including Bernard in all my pictures now… ;). These Spanx leggings have been my favorite lately. They hold everything in and the hight waist is perfect! I wore them here for a more athletic look but they are actually just “regular” leggings.

These satin joggers are soooo good! I loved dressing them up for this look with the heels but still keeping it casual with the cropped hoodie.

This sweater dress, though! I told Brody we need to go back out so I can wear this beauty again because it is just too good to sit in my closet!

Pictures with my girl are my favorite…especially when she cooperates! She has her days when she refuses, but 8/10 this girl is a rockstar and poses so well. She has about a 4 minute span of good behavior before she is over it, though! Same goes for me actually…ha!


I still cannot believe that the Summer is over but I am so thrilled for Fall. Brody and I will be celebrating four years of marriage, Noelia turns THREE in a month, Pumpkin Patch days at Vala’s, crisp evenings, and Pumpkin Spice Latte’s! Fall in Nebraska is the best. Especially with those you love. I will be working on a fitness post for next week as well as a Fall toddler clothing round-up. Have a great week, babes!

    I love the looks you’ve styled! My faves are the satin joggers and the orange layered dress! This reminds me of Carrie Bradshaw’s look in Abu Dhabi when she was walking along the beach. Thanks for sharing your fav IG posts!
